There are many different problems that can arise from poor dental care in our cats, often without the knowledge that we even need to care for them. But brushing our cat’s teeth will benefit them in the long run, no matter how awkward it might be to start. If you notice any of these symptoms, however, your cat might already be suffering from dental disease. Be sure to see your veterinarian.
#1 – Bad Breath
Bad breath is probably the most notable sign of dental disease in cats because it’s so obvious to us as owners. Our cats are often right in our faces, licking us or breathing on us while we’re snuggling on the couch. Cat breath doesn’t particularly smell wonderful to begin with, but if you notice it’s worse than normal it’s time for a vet check-up.
